    "Super and new Orange Logo also"

    January 23, 2010  |   By eeee


    Free, installs fast, the Registration for 1 year of free updates is super easy now


    What cons? Have this on Vista and XP and it works fine !


    Used to use Norton products but I see for the 2010 versions that Norton( and McAfee and the others) no longer have the $20 Upgrade Rebates. Is this a coincidence that ALL the brands dropped Upgrade Rebates?!?!?!?!?
    Anyway, I have been using Avast on my slower older Win2000 PCs for years since Norton and McAfee marooned those OSes, and now I decided to stop worrying about finding a Norton rebate and I installed Avast 5 on my newest Vista64 PCs as well as relative's XP and Vista32 PCs
